    It will do harm.

    The era of blasting scrapebox comments on your website directly ended a long time ago.
    Everyone stopped after a google update that penalized sites doing that.

    Now you can try it on parasites (sites with tons of authority like fiverr) or on second, preferably third tier.

    I can imagine this would work a lot better if the account was both aged and already had a lot of positive reviews.

    Try buying some reviews / exchange some

    Nice! Seems like you’re getting traffic from the links you posted itself. And possibly the google ranking.

    Good idea mate - I'll 7 day trial Ahrefs and get a traffic stat for the URL :) Would be interesting ?

    I wonder how this would work for a blog monetized with adsense.

    Maybe a silly question but did you by any chance pinged the posted URLs? as that'd explain the raw traffic you're receiving without any orders or even inquiries ( I guess)

    Loopline explained this in one of his tutorials.

    OP why don't you do another with a more broad keyword and see how it ranks?

    do you have a way to put an outbound link on your fiver to see the impact it has on ranking another site?

    if so, can you do a test: pick a random keyword, go to page 7-10, pick a site, direct a link from your fivr page to that site, and see what happens after few days. thanks in advance

    Its was done for a friend unfortunately he might drop in and do an update.
    I had 2 on my other gig but that might just be new gig fever
    As above
    I dont know either but I would think it would damage it
    Every step I've taken is in the thread
    Yeah I'm of the same opinion as you on that. That would mess with the natural results, although I could do it on another gig that I buy reviews for and then start hammer the backlinks.. its all about having the time lol
    No, I have actually never used the ping function on SB, but I may use it for anther test
    There is a new project that will test that theory in the planning phase atm
    Unfortunately no if I could I would have RSS indexed them to see what happens, which again is in the next experiment

    @ATuringtest what is interesting is that I did a similar test and throw shit of links to a page on one of my blog in wordpress.com. i used GSA and the page failed to get ranked. it got indexed, but not ranked. so i came to the conclusion that Google does not like tons of shitty backlinks to a page!!! i knew what the results was going to be, just wanted to see it myself : - )

    Yes that's exactly what happens if you throw spam back-links at your "own" domain and I have warned against it on several posts. This is a Parasite test, using the high DA of the host domain which is already indexed.
    Also another thing I have not seen and drop in back-links to the FGig and fiverr giving a toss either :)

    Testing this with my own domain (a site I've had for a couple of years and don't care if gets de-listed) - let's see what happens. Also, this site has Adsense on it so even if no sales come through I should at least see revenue from some ad clicks and impressions. If not then I have to assume all the traffic everyone's been talking about on this thread is either blog comment anti spam systems clicking on the links or blog admins checking out your site - which is my strong suspicion considering NOBODY has reported any sales with this technique yet. I'll report back in a few days.

    That would be excellent, it will be good to see exactly what kind of traffic is going to the site from the posts.
    I made a landing page on wixx 3 days ago, as another part of the experiment that links back to my gig. Heres what its saying about link clicks , of course I cant see the traffic so no site stats.

    I took a look at your test page https://martinclark2112.wixsite.com/backlinks ... it is indexed. I did a google search on "boost your social media" and "backlinks that work". not showing up in google search result in the top 200.

    since this is a test, can you please include a fourth outbound link to another site for a particular keyword (for example: best vacation spot in florida, and pick a page from 70+ spot. would like to see the impact of this page to that particular test page. )

    Ok an update on the Bitly Clicks - I think thats not bad for 4 days - as I've said I'll get better stats in the next experiment.

    How many blogs did you post on to get those? Also it looks like since all the traffic is direct that there's no Google benefit from doing this. But hopefully the traffic is mostly human. I'm still doing my Adsense test so I guess we'll see.

    Ah right, so you're saying if we try this for our own fiverr gigs etc, we should get positive results as well?
